Printing layers

I searched a few ways and did not find anything on this- if it's been answered before please point me in the right direction.

There are parts here that we need to flag with notes just for the engineers. Sometimes it is design intent, oftentimes changes made to a flat pattern that needs to be re-done after a part is updated, etc. In AutoCAD we've always just made the note on a separate layer and set that layer not to print.

Is there a similar feature in Solidworks that I am missing? I have tried making these notes in the Properties area in the file or the drawing but unless you know to look there, the information gets missed- and on a small handful out of thousands of parts, no one remembers, including myself.
